In this talk, Dr. Sanveen (Psych Connect) and Dr. Neil Forrest (Osler Health) talk about 3 topics are that are key to teen mental health: self-image, eating disorders & self-harm.
Negative body image can predisposes teens to eating disorders and mood disorders. Eating disorders are not uncommon among teens. Eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder, are psychological disorders that involve extreme disturbances in eating behavior. A teen with anorexia refuses to stay at a normal body weight. Someone with bulimia has repeated episodes of binge eating followed by compulsive behaviors such as vomiting or the use of laxatives to rid the body of food. Binge eating is characterized by uncontrolled overeating. Meanwhile, self-harm behaviors are attempts to cope.
